There Is (ine person III the factory, how

slgnor of nuw toys. Ho generally nets In
tho capacity of foreman or superintendent,
though not unficiucutly a novelty Is In
vented by one of thu clever workmen. Tills
year the designers h.ivj apparently not
been very busy, nnd In cotiscuucnco the
Mock of American novelties to be olTered
for Clyistnms Is not very great One of
thu most striking among thu new things Is
a Japanese Juggler, who balances a ball on
nu umbrella for a half hour in thu legula
Hon style when wound tip. Another Is a
Spanish dancer of tho initio species, who Is
attached to 11 board and Is worked by a
lover. A weeping doll and dancing liear,
a walking Chinaman, 11 locomotive that
explodes whenever you want It to ami 11
Jointed alligator that creeps along In the
most blood curdlingly natural manner
complete tho list of mechanical novelties.
Then there aro '"doll" sets, combs,
brushes, soap, a tluy bottle of perfumery,
etc., that eoiuu from France, and are cal
ciliated to drive any little miss Into spasms
of delight., (lerinauy also sends something
new in tho "Jumping toy" Hue, being 11
blonde, blue eyed boy, who Jumps on Ins
hands nnd knees true to nature; while
America has added 11 Jumping tin frog that
will win the Iniys' hearts.
In dolls 11 greater variety than lias ever
been seen lie fore will lie on tho shelves of
the toy stores. There are dolls who walk
nnd dolls who bow and dolls who salute
you, or fan themselves, or do almost any
thing else that you wish. And then, of
course, there Is tho doll that talks, thanks
to Mr. Edison, Hut this doll hasn't been
much of a success. Tho pi Ice (f 10) Is too
high, mid then iM'sldessko loses her voice
A Fiiutitleroy doll, though, that came from
Fran-o has lieen sold to retailers by tin
ton, iud a "mourning doll" has gone so
well that the stocks have been exhausted.
Fot tho children of the rich there are any
nuinls'rof expensive new mechanical toys
from France. A Juggler about two feet
high who does more wonderful tricks than
Hermann Is on the shelves for fJl(K) along
side of 11 "pleading barrister" at the same
priee. There Is an "elect rlo toy" for hoys
with luiUlsltlve minds. This fetches fTi,
and generates electricity which Is made
to ring liells,turu machinery, etc. A four
teen inch bonr who walks us naturally as
life Is rated nt (20, and a school of musical
cats nt IfJ. A lioothlnck and a spinning
woman who work for dear life when
wound up are worth tWS. From thin things
